In a recent interview with a leading Indian daily, Priyanka Chopra opened up on her journey to Hollywood. She mentioned that she did what needed to be done and there was no set plan mapped out for her. The Isn’t It Romantic actress said that there were times when she walked in a room and introduced herself as an actor from India. Eventually, with shows like Quantico and her films like Baywatch; she was able to make her mark and prove her mettle.
Now that Priyanka Chopra has made a mark in the industry, she is going to start going places with her production house. She mentioned in the interview that it was her dream to see Indian cinema making a mark in the west.
“Somewhere, people don’t see Bollywood with the lens that they saw it with when I started working in America. I got a lot of ‘So you must be a good dancer?’ and I used to be like ‘Ya, I can sing, dance and act, I am a triple threat!’ So, you have to stop people in tracks and say ‘I am not just one thing’... It took a lot of work, I am so glad. I hope beyond what we are seeing, I want to see Indian actors and movies become mainstream global entertainers,” she said. She went on to add that “I dug my feet in, persevered and did what I needed to do. It’s my dream that Indian cinema becomes global.”
